A chronological history of the Abbey from 907 to 2015 by Liz Hallett
This is designed to be a companion volume to other Abbey histories, and especially to Judy Walker’s book, but looks at the story in a way which has not been attempted before. By studying events in the order in which they happened, one can see cause and effect and it leads to a greater understanding of why certain things took place.
The book should be particularly helpful in giving answers to some of the questions asked by visitors. It is laid out in a way that is easy for everyone to dip into it to learn more of the fascinating history of Romsey’s nunnery and parish church during the last 1100+ years.
It has 234 pages and 210 illustrations. The price is £15, profits in aid of Abbey funds. It is available on the bookstall.
The Book was launched with a talk in the Church Rooms on Saturday June 6th. You can hear Liz’s talk at the launch below
